Dual format VCR`s
- Hi Don,
Yes I can confirm that most of the new VCR`s in the UK now play both
PAL and NTSC tapes as I found out when looking into a way of playing
or converting the Search tapes. I am not sure if these machines are
available in the US though, check with your local electrical stores.
I suppose it is because of consumer demand, I know people who buy
tapes when they are in the US or order via the internet simply
because they are cheaper than the UK (but then isn`t everything !, as
I understand it you pay about a $1 a gallon for fuel, our equivalent
is $9 a gallon !) it is the same with DVD players and discs, NTSC
versions are much cheaper than PAL but you need a multi-region player
or someone who knows how to de-code them.
